News: Kylie Announces Giorgio Moroder + Betty Who As Special Guests On ‘Kiss Me Once’ Tour

2 min read

(AUS) Kylie’s critically acclaimed and much-awaited ‘Kiss Me Once’ World Tour lands in Australia next month for a run of homecoming shows across the country! Adding to the already high levels of excitement surrounding the tour, it has been confirmed that electronic disco pioneer and Kylie collaborator Giorgio Moroder and local power-pop performer Betty Who will be joining the tour as special guests.

Moroder’s hands have touched countless hits across the decades and his DJ set will include select cuts from an impressive discography featuring some of the biggest names in music.

A legend of synth disco and electronic dance music, Moroder launched Donna Summer’s career and has been involved in the production of #1 hits for the likes of Blondie, Irene Cara, David Bowie and Freddie Mercury. As a result Moroder has four Grammy Awards, three Academy Awards and an induction into the Dance Music Hall of Fame to his name and shows no signs of slowing down after fifty years in the industry.

A guest appearance on Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories brought the Italian dance innovator back into the spotlight and the renaissance of Moroder continues with ‘Right Here, Right Now’, a slice of funk-infused beats featuring guest vocals from our very own Kylie.

The lead single comes from Moroder’s first studio album in thirty years (out early 2015 through RCA Records/Sony Music Australia), which will also feature collaborations from Britney Spears, Sia and Charli XCX amongst many more. Testament to his latest single ’74 Is The New 24’, Moroder performed his first ever DJ set at the age of 73 in New York’s Deep Space in 2013. He offered an impressive mix of his massive hits including Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love, ‘Bad Girls’ and ‘Hot Stuff’ as well as his recent Daft Punk collaboration, the nine-minute tribute track ‘Giorgio by Moroder’.

Also joining Kylie on the Kiss Me Once tour will be Sydney-born singer/songwriter Betty Who. Her feel-good pop tune ‘Somebody Loves You’ went viral after it was featured in a flash-mob marriage proposal video which has twelve million views and counting. The global success continues with the track set to feature on award-winning television series Glee over this coming weekend.

Kylie has been described as Moroder’s ‘perfect partner in crime’ and the Kiss Me Once Tour is the perfect opportunity to see the pair doing what they do best as well as local party starter Betty Who – make sure you pack your dancing shoes!
